U95 Jinhao 599 Fountain Pens Extra Fine Nib Fashion Gift 3 color. Ordered 12/16/15.

U95 Jinhao 599 Fountain Pens Extra Fine Nib Fashion Gift 3 color [blk], model T31367. Ordered 12/16/15. [$1.38 FS]. Lamy Safari Clone. Arrived 1/6/16.

Wrote on contact with paper. Wet on Mead green tint steno tablet paper, but smooth and consistent. The converter is not quite right: spins in either direction but doesn’t stop or pause at either end. For appearance & construction, I’m awarding 3 stars — average. For writing, 3.5 stars — good. For appearance & construction, I’m awarding 2 stars — poor. For writing, 2 stars — poor.

1/16/16: Revising ratings to poor. Slow starter after sitting dormant for a day or more. Sometimes it refuses to start at all.

Reviews:
Matt  Armstrong, “Pen Review: Jinhao 599,” Pen Habit, 6/6/15. “The Jinhao 599 wisely uses an included standard international converter, and can also accept long and short standard international cartridges.”
